Search below to find environmental maps. Return to the Map Library main page to search for maps by topic.


  • In the Library
  • Colorado & U.S. (online)
  • International (online)


  • Think about what aspect of the environment you are studying. Use that as a keyword in your search. Limit your search to “maps” as well as your region of interest. For example, yo might use keyword searches like "ecosystem*," "pollut*," or "habitat" and your region of interest.

  • Environmental atlases can be a good starting point.

  • You may also want to search for a general atlas for your region of interest to see if there is a section on environmental aspects of that region.
